When Elspeth was five months old, we realized her breathing sounded labored. We took her to Primary Children’s Hospital and discovered that she had respiratory problems. For months, we wound up in the emergency room for breathing treatments. Around her first birthday, they were able to diagnose her with asthma. It’s something she will have for the rest of her life.
Primary Children’s helped train us on how to best care for her at home. Sometimes, we still find ourselves at the emergency room when things cannot be controlled. However, they help our family stay out of the hospital as much as possible.
Elspeth loves to run, swim, and play.
